|Here is closet 1 before the makeover. In this photo, |
somehow it doesn't look so bad, but that's because there's
a boatload of clothes that moved downstairs to the basement.
|In order for the installers to put in the new closet system, you have |
to EMPTY the closets first. Looks like my closets threw up all
over my room!
I have nothing but nice things to say about The Container Store and the installation team (apparently a separate company, but somehow affiliated with TCS). I put my order in on a Saturday afternoon and the installation was available to be scheduled for Tuesday. Jonathan, the installer, arrived promptly at 6pm, and was finished by 7:30 pm.

- Zebra and leopard print play a major role in my wardrobe (probably only Cher has more jungle print clothing than I do).
- Time to do another clothing purge. Now that I can see everything I own, I decided that there are definitely some things that are destined for the Goodwill bin.

Have a great night!
Pugs and kisses,
